Callophrys rubi

Hostplant: The larva can feed on many types of plants, most commonly on Vaccinium spp. but also on different plants of Fabaceae. In my breeding efforts i fed the larva with Lotus pedunculatus.

Lifecycle and behaviour: I happened to stumble across an L2 larva while picking hostplant for another breeding project. Unfortunately i did not keep records, and also the larva dissapeared after cleaning out the container and changing hostplant. I suspect that i might have accidentally thrown out the larva with the old hostplant without noticing. New breeding efforts with full records will be made in the future!
